Health Care Problem? Are You Kidding?

Out of the Salt Lake Tribune, this horror story in Ogden, Utah – “Since she didn't have health insurance, Valorie Johnston got creative when her 6-year-old son, Tanner, needed stitches: She used Super Glue. She didn't take him to a dentist until she saw a rotting tooth - and then found out he had eight cavities. Last year, fearing her labor was starting too early with her third child, Johnston went to an emergency room, only to discover she had kidney stones. Without insurance, she explains, "You just wait until there's a crisis that happens and deal with it then."

This particular system of health care should sound familiar. It’s the one where “people take control” of their health care decisions. Not some government bureaucrat.

Or maybe this wasn’t the best example?
